Mom left on Jan. 2 and we moved from Zihuatanejo to the marina at Ixtapa on Jan. 3. We will stay there tonight and then leave for Acapulco sometime tomorrow. We have been busy cleaning the outside of the boat, this being the first time since San Diego that we have had fresh water to wash down the boat. The hardest chore was cleaning the anchor chain. It had growth on it that was really scummy and it would not come off without a real good scrubbing. There was only about 30 feet that was affected, thank goodness, but it still took us about 2 1/2 hours. The chain is still all over the dock, we are going to repaint it later this afternoon.

The other thing that happened was we snapped off the connection to the card that hooks us into the internet, so we do not have internet access on the boat anymore. If you want to get in touch with us please use this e-mail

We are looking forward to heading out again but I have very mixed feelings about leaving without Mungo. It just doesn't feel right.
